Using Timers in J2EE Applications
Subject:   TimerHandle as class level attribute in a stateless SessionBean

the variable timerHandle is declared as a class level attribute. Since TimerDemoBean is a stateless SessionBean the value of timerHandle will be lost if the container decides to passivate/remove the bean even if a Timer has been initialized previously, am I right?!

Thus is makes not much sense to keep the handle in a class level attribute of a stateless SessionBean, does it?
